Description
Italian restaurant and Pizzeria, with large spaces and comfortable tables and seats on the beach, all under the shade of spectacular palm trees. The kitchen offers one of the most exciting interpretations of traditional Italian dishes, both land and sea, and a great choice of Pizzas cooked in a wood oven, accompanied by a good wine list and a wide selection of cocktails.
